Girl talk for new racers: In bracket racing, each driver estimates how fast their ride will run the quarter mile, and writes that number – the dial in – on the right windshield of their vehicle and their passenger side window.
If someone drives faster than the dial in, then it’s called a breakout, and the other driver wins.
If there is a double breakout, with both drivers going faster than their dial ins, then the one closest to the dial in wins.
A red light happens if a car moves out of the indicator lights before the tree turns green, resulting in a negative reaction time and a red light foul. A red light means the other driver wins.
If both drivers red light, then the driver who red lights first loses.
